The Chair of Biotechnology of CentraleSupélec, launched in 2010 and located in the Centre Européen de Biotechnologie et de Bioéconomie (CEBB), has three areas of expertise:
- Characterization & conversion of lignocellulosics,
- Downstream processing.
Backed by the Process Engineering and Materials Laboratory, this chair is a strong link between its head institution – CentraleSupélec – and economic and academic actors; most of the R&D activities are led in regional, national and international collaborative projects. With its training of high-level general engineers, CentraleSupélec has a strong expertise in modeling applied to (bio)process and (bio)materials. Thus, in addition to the experimental approach, the three areas of expertise of the Chair significantly rely on a set of core skills in Modeling, Simulation & Visualization, more particularly oriented towards the modeling of life mechanisms and the up-scaling of processes for the industry.
The Chair of Biotechnology of CentraleSupélec, renewed in 2020, is co-financed by the Département de la Marne (7 M€), Greater Reims (1 M€), the Région Grand Est and the European Union with the European Regional Development Fund ERDF Champagne Ardenne 2014-2020 (3.65 M€).
